With thanks to Texas in Africa, a textual deconstruction of Toto's "I Bless the Rain Down in Africa"
There are delightful zingers throughout. My favorite:
Quintessentially American attitudes:
1 - The consumption of televised suffering grants me moral depth. [my favorite]
2 - Benevolence begins and ends in my imagination
3 - Africa sure be exotic
4 - All this consuming and appropriating is tiring. Break time!
